Halo 5: Guardians gets no splitscreen because it’s “nontrivial”
As we all know, Halo 5: Guardians is closing in, just a few more weeks until the release of one of my most anticipated games is here, October 27th for those of you wondering. Now, we also know that Halo 5 will NOT feature a splitscreen multiplayer, this being the first in the series as far as I know that does not have this. When a fan tweeted Frank O’Connor at 343 about bringing it back he answered with the words:
“If we could do it, we would do it. But it is what they call ‘nontrivial’.”
From there, the answers exploded. I’m not sure how many angry answers he got since I stopped scrolling after a while, but there were a lot.
I mean, I know I’m not the only one thinking that Halo was the epitome of bringing your friends over to play over a night with a few beers and just hanging out, that was pretty much how my Halo career started. I know a lot of people were complaining about not having any use for multiple controllers now since they had bought them for co-op playing Halo, and while that must feel kind of bad now, there will be other games to play co-op with your friends.
In his latest tweet, he has been teasing people about how nice the cinematics in the game looks, but honestly, I would rather see a splitscreen option available than a nice cinematic that I will watch one, maybe two times.
So for now, you will have to settle with playing online with your friends, but hey there’s always voice-chat. Halo is now in 343i’s care and it’s up to them what to do with it. I would personally liked to have seen a continuation of good multiplayer and co-op, but they decided to focus on other things. Hopefully we will get it patched in at a later date, but I wouldn’t count on it for now.
What do you think about this? Is having splitscreent that big of a deal for you? Leave a comment down below.
